Chalkboard Birthday Tin
Hi everyone! Margie Higuchi here. Today, I’d like to show how I repurposed a mint tin by using many wonderful Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products! I love how the colors and mediums mix and match to make it SO EASY to create!
First we need to prep the tin by sanding the surface and then applying Gesso. I put two coats on with dry time in between coats.
Next I covered the entire tin with Chalkboard Paint. I put three coats on with dry time in between coats. Love it!
Now for the fun part - to embellish! First I spread Whipped Spackle on the top of the tin with my finger.
Then I edge Gesso on the edge of the lid with a brush.
The same color combination of Gelatos® sticks was used to edge the lid to keep the colors consistent throughout the project.
To add a different kind of texture, I rolled orange twine to create a wreath and sealed with Gel Medium. Let dry. It will stiffen and it's ready to be added.
Add everything on including pins, sequins and butterfly...a second look at the finished project.
